Even More Steinberg Murals

In a Facebook discussion the other day involving murals by Charles Addams and Steinberg,  Joel Smith, who authored Steinberg At The New Yorker (Harry N. Abrams, 2005) commented on Paul Karasik‘s Facebook stream that Steinberg created two incredibly long murals: one 260 ft., and another even longer. I asked Mr. Smith where best we might go online to see the murals.  Here are his suggested links:

“The Americans” for the 1958 World’s Fair in Brussels

The Milan Triennial, 1954 (on the timeline, scroll down to 1954, the Milan Triennial)

— photo above: Steinberg on the far right, wearing hat, stands before his mural in Brussels.

…The Amazon price is plummeting for the recently published New Yorker Encyclopedia of Cartoons (originally offered at $100.00). The big red trope box can now be yours for a mere $40.38.  Just four days ago it was $45.83. I smell a bargain.

…Even more Edward Koren.  This short piece on Mr. Koren  has been picked up by the AP and is showing up all over the place today. Below: Mr. Koren’s latest collection.

The Tilley Watch Online, November 5-9, 2018; Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind; Short Interview Of Interest: Art Spiegelman

The emphasis was, of course(!), on the political this week, with at least half of the Daily Cartoons specifically Trump-centered (Farley Katz‘s Amazon drawing referencing hometown baseball and  “Midnight Cowboy” (?) was an exception).  The other contributing New Yorker cartoonists were Ellis Rosen, Kim Warp, Lars Kenseth, Brendan Loper, and Mort Gerberg.

Over on Daily Shouts, Olivia de Recat and Tom Chitty were the contributing New Yorker cartoonists (Ms. de Recat twice).

Site Of Interest: A New Yorker State Of Mind

The always entertaining and enlightening A New Yorker State Of Mind: Reading Every Issue Of The New Yorker looks at the issue of October 26, 1929 (with Theodore Haupt’s beautiful cover). Key quote from this post:

Although two months remained in the decade, the New Yorker of the Roaring Twenties effectively ended with this issue, just days before a massive market crash sent the nation spiraling into the Great Depression.
